HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut's Department of Correction on Thursday reversed its decision to remove a 21-year-old novel written by internationally known author Wally Lamb, a volunteer at one of the state's prisons.

The agency said "She's Come Undone," a best-selling novel that became widely read after being selected by Oprah Winfrey's book club in 1996, came up for review after a Mansion Youth Institution inmate ordered it. The department said the purchase was temporarily denied and the book was removed from circulation at the York Correctional Institution library due to "some of the graphic nature" of the content.
